This character stone built cottage ( 821 Sq Ft ) is believed to date from circa 1600 with character features including Ingle nook fireplace, sash windows & exposed stone walling.
The property is arranged over 3 floors and has an enclosed rear garden with potential for off street parking using the access lane to rear - please note there is a right of way over the access lane from neighbouring properties.
The property is not listed but is within a conservation area.


Completion is set for 6 weeks from exchange of contracts or earlier by mutual consent.


The property is situated within a highly sought after village if Freshford approximately 5 miles South East of Bath and 5 miles west of Bradford on Avon.
It is rare to find a village around Bath which offers the facilities including village shop, excellent Primary school, bus services, railway station and village public house.
There are delightful walks through open countryside available nearby.
Excellent transport links with railway link to Bath.


The property now requires basic updating and would benefit from some rearrangement on the ground floor to create an open plan living space opening onto the garden but would make a fine home.
There is a scheme in place to extend the property and create 3 bedrooms - no planning has been sought or granted.
Please refer to online legal pack to view the proposed plans.

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £750 + VAT buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.


An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.


The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
